EU-US Trade negotiations to kick off in Washington


The team of EU
negotiators, headed by chief negotiator Ignacio Garcia Bercero, has arrived in
Washington to start the first round of negotiations on the EU-US Transatlantic
Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). In this first round of talks, a range
of issues will be discussed in different working groups:

they will cover market
access for goods, services, investment, public procurement, regulatory issues,
and non-tariff barriers in areas such as customs, intellectual property, energy
and raw materials, and the environment. The ambition is to negotiate a deal
that could spur growth worth 0.5% of the EU's GDP. A joint press conference
will be held by the chief negotiators on Friday 12 July at the end of the
week's negotiations.
